“Extract” Test Pressing Youth Dance Project December 2017

Like flashbulb memories triggered by memories in a space, the pieces physicalises the dancer’s emotional connection to a space, and to the memories made there. Specifically, these memories were centred around memories of the “first day” of dance in the space as well as perceived hierarchies of those they encountered.

The Test Pressing group was established to provide young dancers with dance experiences that are unique and as a change from the typical options of eisteddfods in their late teenage years. The cast were aged between 16 and 19 at the time.

Extract occurred on Saturday the 2nd of December 2017 at 7pm and 8:30pm. Duration 40-mins.

“Mental Rental” Youth Dance Project January 2013

An immersive dance theatre project for youth/ students who longed for dance experiences beyond the glitz and hairspray of the eisteddfod circuit. After the success of their anonymous “Contemporary X” performance, they braved stepping away from the eisteddfod arena and they engaged their fearless leader Claire Marshall to make something in the style of the work she was making in her immersive dance theatre works touring in Queensland at the time.

The result was Mental Rental: with a DIY approach to the space, set, lighting, marketing, the project became a holistic experience for the cast who were required to be involved in many of the aspects of the show.
